Nutrition and being active can cure many of the ailments we face today. Eating way too much, eating nutrient poor foods, sitting most of the day, and not incorporating exercise leads to the common health diseases like diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and even just feeling achy and pain.

We are currently playing around with video making for both NutrActive and the Blog Consequently Fit. Below are embedded videos we have created with some we recommend watching (not associated with NutrActive). NutrActive is always adding to the videos in the play list, looking for informative or encouraging content to not only educate you, but to motivate you to finally take action and control your daily life habits. Start with two or three things about your day to change. Master those and then choose another two or three habits to alter. This is the best pathway to long term healthy lifestyle success.

NutrActive hopes the videos shared helps you in your efforts to live healthy!
